diversity in the near future and i predict president obama, who is keen on women's leadership will get the point some time soon. >> msnbc's richard liu. how does it look? >> it's early but the next presidential cabinet could be less diverse. here's a roster so far. for defense secretary, it goes from leon panetta to chuck hagel. no change in diversity there. cia director from petraeus to john brennan, no change. tim geithner to jack lou, no change there. john kerry is nominated to replace secretary of state hillary clinton, that's one less woman, the possible replacement with ashton carter, one less minority. and head of the epa lisa jackson, the first black woman to hold that title, her replacement is unknown. of hundreds of senior appoint ees and nominees, 48% were minority or women according to the national journal. and 13 out of 22 of his first cabinet members were diverse. that's a record. but it's not only about ethnicity and gender, the president could potentially nominate the first openly gay cabinet member. he could choose more with business executive experience. his team head

elect president barack obama, who has been so good for women across the country. it was pretty clear this election was about women. it was about women candidates. it was about women donors we heard a lot of women's issues, some in a way i would prefer not to hear about, and we sure heard a lot about women voters who made these decisions. there's been a lot of talk about this new democratic coalition, the winning coalition of young people, hispanics, and women. kind of like that coalition. think that's a great coalition. but women want to keep -- women are not just a voting bloc or subset of the population. they are 51% of the population, that's a majority. and less than 55% of women voted for president obama. there was an 18-point gender gap in this election, and for every unmarried woman who voted for romney two of them voted for obama. this is the change that we're seeing, and women weren't just the deciders in 2012. they will decide for elections to come. they're going to decide who holds the power in this country. and from our research from election night and all of our electoral

virginia women voted 54% in favor of barack obama. it's increasingly a diverse state, a purple state. i kind of scratch my head. how do they get their math if all they want to do is do a war on women? how do they want to expand that map if 54% of all voters are women? >> yet, jonathan, there are now four states with only one abortion clinic, mississippi, arkansas, and north and south dakota. this is often because republicans use onerous regulations, regulations, of course, that they deride in every other aspect of governance, but which they apply to prevent countless facilities from qualifying for usage. >> so, for instance, the virginia law that maria teresa pointed out, among the regulations that abortion clinics would have to abide by, abortion clinics would have to be regulated along the lines of a hospital -- a hospital operating room so they would have to have the ventilation system for a sterile environment even though one is not needed to perform an abortion. they would have to have regulated widths for hallways and doors for abortion clinics. and this is another one that is rat

, as potentials. why no more women in the cabinet? >> well, we're just losing two high-profile women in the obama administration, hillary clinton, but also lisa jackson at epa. it is -- seems to me the president's going to want to try to get in his last remaining appointments some women in play. susan rice can stay in at u.n. but you want to get a few more. you might see more women becoming assistant secretaries, high-level ambassadorships on the foreign policy front and i think you'll find a woman finding a spot in one of the domestic cabinet posts. but it's, i think, the president felt he had to pick the people that were best and their names were kerry, brennan and hagel, after he floated rice around a little and she didn't track. >> because of the movie "lincoln" that's been out and doris concerns good win's book "team of rivals," obama's cabinet picks now for a second term are the least team of rivals ever. explain that a bit. >> yes. i mean these are a team of friends. i don't blame the president. look, you're in the second term now, you've won a big election like he did. you don't want to h
